Summer Looks

9:26 PM

I put together some summer looks for when it's super hot and you're going out and for when it's a bit on the chillier side. Emerson Thorpe makes an awesome blazer, it's so light and has that cool droopy fit. The white is the perfect compliment for a tan, so I'd stick with that, plus I love the way it looks with denim. I paired my Emerson Thorpe blazer with Citizen of Humanity jeans and a blue Naven blouse. I love this look because it's easy and a great go to, all while still looking put together and chic. The other outfit is my favorite Naven top. I am obsessed with everything Naven. They use the most amazing colors and push a girl to stand out of her box a little bit. I always have so much fun with their collection. I paired the Naven top with an Emerson Thorpe skirt, sort of like the Pleasure Doing Business skirts. It's a great outfit to pair with a sexy open toe pump for a night out over the Summer. I even incorporated that Rebecca Minkoff side messenger bag. It's a personal favorite. This bag is a great summer purchase because Rebecca chose a really great yellow that I normally wouldn't choose for a bag. It screams summer, plus the studding makes it edgier and a little bit more fun.
If you could put together a fun outfit to go out in from SINGER22, what would you choose?

Be A Local Celebrity

8:10 PM

I was a little hesitant when they told us they were sending down SINGER22 t-shirts to shoot, until I was pleasantly surprised. I thought, honestly, they were going to be white/grey/and black t-shirts that just said SINGER22, but when I opened the box, it was filled with all different neon colors, they made it sort of crop top, off the shoulder, football jersey writing. I fell in love. They didn't use your typical hot pink, orange, yellow neons – they used turquiose and green which look awesome on. I also love the v-neck tees that say SINGER22 loves me. They're a perfect hang out piece, to wear around the house, or even to run some errands. I'd probably wear it with jean shorts or leggings. I'd also probably pair it with my Sam Edelman sneakers I got at SINGER22, I live in them! Pick out your favorite here!

Loving Lace

2:43 PM

I like it, I love it, I want some more of it: LACE. The ultimate balance of the hottest trend, lace, is to be romantic but not over-girly. When wearing lace you want to be sensual but not too sexy. The lace isn't an added detail of a garment, it is the garment.  Dare to wear your lace with not a slip under it, but a swim suit or body suit…Just be sure to keep the cut a little more relaxed or the hem a little longer to maintain that aforementioned balance. Lace no longer has to be worn and followed by “Here Comes The Bride”.  Take your lace look from bridal to summer chic by shopping the trend here: Nightcap ~ Foley + Corinna ~Torn by Ronny Kobo

Get inspired to lace it up with Olivia Palermo's look:

Get Alessandra Ambrosio’s Beach Look

12:14 PM

Our fave model, Alessandra Ambrosio, soaked up some sun on a family beach day in Malibu this past weekend.  We so rarely spot celebs in a one piece these days, but I think Alessandra is totally working it– what do you guys think??  I'm loving the super sweet heart print and the backless style that keeps this suit fun.

Alessandra is wearing the Wildfox Marilyn One Piece paired with her AG Farrah Shorts.  You can snag her beach style right here at Singer22.  Don't forget to leave the blog some love and let us know what you think of Alessandra's look!

These Are A Few . . .

7:01 PM

. . . of my (SINGER22) favorite things.  With so many hot trends of the moment, from bold colors to boho dresses, it is making dressing up this summer much more fun! I like to keep things simple and timeless which is why I picked out the pieces above.  I love the nautical shorts because you can put a t-shirt on top for day or dress it up with a cute blouse for night. Always having that go to bracelet for a bold punch is on my must have list and you cannot go wrong with this amazing JJ Winters handbag.  There are so many fun things to pick from on SINGER22.com right now, but here are a few of my favorite things of the moment:

Nightcap ~ Alice + Olivia ~ 7 for All Mankind ~ Generation Love ~ Twenty8Twelve ~ Natalie B ~ JJ Winters ~

Back to Basics

4:32 PM


Consider this:  Why do we spend the least on basics–the things that we wear the most?  If we're going to subject ourselves to something every day, isn't that where we should really be investing?  Well, if you're looking for luxe basics, look no further than Pencey Standard.

A gorgeous maxi skirt that hugs in all the right places, this piece is a great building block for a comfy-chic wardrobe.  It also features a lace-up detail that adds a unique and subtly-sexy vibe.  Pair this with a slinky tank top, vintagey denim jacket, and summery fedora, and you've got yourself an effortless look that totally embodies “cool-girl” style.

Pencey has mastered the difficult science of draping–evidenced by the gorgeous Sobo top.  I also love that the grey version has contrasting piping around the neck and sleeves.  Another subtle detail that really makes this not-so-basic basic tee stand apart from the crowd.

My final favorite piece is the football tank.  I have one of these myself, and it's seriously the most perfect way to throw together an outfit that screams effortless chic.  It's also a way to ooze sex appeal–who doesn't love a little side-boob?  A girlie take on a manly basic, this top is perfect in that strangely sexy equation: oversized menswear + something tight and feminine = totally irresistible.

Michael Lauren

1:03 PM

Yesterday, Barbara and I shot some really great new pieces, but the ones that truly caught my eyes were the Michael Lauren pieces. The perfect every day tops, and then the perfect beach dresses. If you recall that brand Petit Bateau, Michael Lauren kind of resembled that and I LIVED in that brand when I was younger. It was nice to see a more updated version of it. I was able to pair those tops with absolutely anything at SINGER22. The tops were great with all the Siwy shorts and would compliment a bell bottom like the Citizens of Humanity or the Textile Elizabeth and James pair. The dresses were the softest pieces that I probably would wear on the beach and in bed. They are that good, you could actually sleep in them. They also used the perfect colors for it. I love a garment that has a good striping. Michael Lauren really nails the perfect stripes that don't make you look wider than you actually are. Check it out HERE!

The LWD Takes Over

12:28 PM

Time to push that LBD (little black dress) to the back shelf.  This summer it's all about busting out your whites and we've got plenty to choose from.  I love the look of a simple little white dress because it's feminine, classic and can take you from day to night.

La La LOVE my Litas!

9:25 PM

I believe that I have found my new go-to shoe…I am SO in love with my Jeffery Campbell Lita shoes! They're the perfect shoe for literally any outfit. Whether I want to be cute and casual or more polished and dressy, I've been going to my Jeffery Campbell Lita shoes to complete almost all of my looks. As a proud owner of the  Lita Harness, a Singer22 exclusive, I can say that I really have worn these shoes with everything! So far I've paired my Litas with a tank and cutofffs, a maxi dress and even a romper. How do you wear your Jeffery Campbell Litas?
